Eminem Opens Up About Rihanna And ‘The Monster Tour’
In an interview on Sirius XM’s Shade 45 station, Eminem opened up about his experiences on The Monster Tour with Rihanna, which concluded in his hometown of Detroit on Aug. 23. While backstage at MetLife stadium in New Jersey before his show there in mid-August, Eminem talked to host Reef the Streets about working with Rihanna, how the tour came together, and how it compares to his previous tours.
“As far as me and Rih working together, I think it’s great,” Eminem said of working with Rihanna. “I think that it’s interesting how our music does intertwine and certain themes and things seem to work together really well. The crowds have been incredible, the people have been amazing, it’s been fun.”
The “Rap God” goes on to clarify how truly fun the tour has been by comparing it to negative tour experiences he’s had in the past. “I can honestly say that because I used to not have fun,” he says, “There was one point in time where [doing shows] was all bad.”
When asked about how he goes about choosing setlists for his shows, Em replies, “Selfishness. Whatever I feel like doing is whatever people gotta f*****g deal with…We don’t ever wanna get stale, just keep doing the same s**t.”
